Waiting on Wednesday

I'm with Stupid by Geoff Herbach. 320 p. Sourcebooks Incorporated, May 1, 2013.  9781402277917.

Publisher synopsis: It's nerd-turned-jock Felton Reinstein's last year before college, and the choices he makes now will affect the rest of his life. That's a lot of pressure. So, he's going to make a list. What would he be if he weren't a jock? He'll try everything—comedian, partier, super student—and which ever identity he likes best he'll stick with. Poof. Stress gone.
Except not... Because the list leads to:
1. The whole state of Wisconsin hating him.
2. His track coach suspending him.
3. His mom moving out.
Before leaving home forever, Felton will have to figure out just who he is, even if, sometimes, it sucks to be him.

If you haven't read Stupid Fast or Nothing Special (didn't get to review it in my summer reading frenzy, but it was good!), you have time to remedy the situation before I'm with Stupid drops in May. Felton and his brother are memorable, sweet and oh so flawed. They are two characters I want to hug and never let go.
